    It seems that I am not the only one having trouble setting this up. I will be the first to tell you that I am not a very savvy tech person but I can follow directions. Can someone post clear step by step directions to get this set up and working. I want to push e mail, sync it with my iMac for contacts and iCal.

    Apple business told me that I cannot set us g mail as exchange unless I have an exchange server. I that true?

    I've done this multiple times. If I ever forget it, I always go to this site.

    Agreed and maybe your contacts as well. I've never used Gmail for anything but mail. I'm not saying it's not a good service, I'm just used to Apple's iCloud. It's seamless with my MBP. Plus, it's free now.
